Garbine Muguruza withdraws in San Jose to leave field wide open
San Jose has lost its top seed after Garbine Muguruza pulled out with injury.
The Spaniard was all set to face former world number one Victoria Azareka on Wednesday night in the second round.
However, she is heading home from the WTA Tour early instead.
“I’ve been feeling some pain in my right arm for a couple of days and realised I am not ready to play the match, so hopefully I can recover for the next tournaments,” Muguruza said in a statement.
Muguruza has pulled out of San Jose with a right arm injury. She will be replaced by lucky-loser Anna Blinkova.

“This is a tournament I always play at the start of the US Open Series so I hope to come back and see all my fans next year.”
